A school dilemma

One of the benefits of homeschooling is that our schedule is flexible. We can decide to go out of town and not have to worry about the kids missing school. We can have school in the morning, afternoon, night, weekends, whenever we want. We can do 2-3 days worth of school in one day and other days we barely get through one days worth of work. The flexibility has me spoiled.

The dilemma of homeschooling is that my kids know the public school schedule. They know that school was out for MLK day and will be out for President's Day. Our school does not take those 2 days off. And they also know that today the public school was let out at 8:45 because there of ice in the trees.

So my dilemma is to have school or not. I've decided that since the public schools went to school for an hour, we will also do a little bit of school. The kids seem fine with it, since they enjoy what we will be doing. Test prep for the standardized test they take in April. I think I have strange kids!

I have had school with Mary-Kate too. We were making Valentine's Day cards for her classmates and she was writing her name. This is going to take awhile.
